Palissy Briefcase

Superlative Quality & Unbeatable Value

I spent many many months debating my purchase, after finding your products and website on Instagram.

Put simply, I love my Palissy Briefcase in Chocolate/ The quality of leather is beautiful, and after 6 months of frequent use it has aged well and retained the structure of the briefcase. I have always had difficulty finding leather briefcases that retained their shape as well as this one has. Carl Friedrik has by far exceeded any of my many other briefcases in both quality and functionality. I have several briefcases from Coach, Burberry, and Uri Minkoff, ranging from $350 to $2600, and I would strongly argue that my Palissy is the best value. It is also the perfect size—I'm able to pack my macbook air, ipad air, charging cables, etc. and basically anything I need for the day in this bag.

I also highly value knowing where each of the parts come from and are assembled. This is something that too few brands are transparent about, and I appreciate that you proudly display this information in marketing your products. It's something I am also proud of when people comment on, and ask about, my briefcase.

The only thing about my Palissy that I don't care much for is the shoulder strap: I find the leather a little too stiff, a bit too broad, and the clasps are, although a beautiful material, a little bulky. I will admit that I may be too picky in this regard; only one of my briefcases has a shoulder strap that I actually enjoy.

All in all, my Pallisy briefcase is my favourite and I look forward to using it for many years to come. I also am looking forward to my next purchase, which will either be the Palissy or Vallance in Cognac, once my current cognac bag wears out.

Keep bringing out great products like this.
